Do you find yourself thinking about food all day, "overeating" at night, not being able to keep that one food in the house, and preoccupied about your weight? You are not alone in these struggles. Unfortunately, these things feel normal in our culture, but you don't have to have a bad relationship with food any longer. As a registered dietitian and nutrition and body image coach, I've helped so many women step out of the obsession and chaos and into peaceful food freedom. Imagine a life where you can trust your body, eat food you love and not feel guilty, and respect and value your body as it is.
